'RHOM' star Lisa Hochstein charged with shoving and 'verbally assaulting' estranged husband Lenny in violent tirade
MIAMI, FLORIDA: In an altercation at their home, Lisa Hochstein, 'The Real Housewives of Miami' star, is charged with pushing and verbally abusing her estranged husband Lenny Hochstein. She allegedly launched a violent rant at the plastic surgeon, 56, on May 10 as he entered the bedroom they had shared in their $10 million Island property.
Lisa, 40, allegedly raced out of the combination bathroom and closet after Lenny entered the bedroom to pick up his mail, according to new documents filed by Lenny, reported Page Six. “Upon entering the master bedroom, Lisa suddenly ran out of her combined bathroom and closet and surprised Lenny by engaging in a verbal tirade, demanding to know why he had entered the master bedroom,” the documents stated as per the report.

Lenny alleged Lisa painted him as the 'aggressor'
Lenny claimed that when Lisa shoved him, he backtracked but that the reality star "continued to pursue and follow him while yelling at him." He contended Lisa had the option to lock the bedroom door after he left, but she instead decided to escalate the conflict by dialing 911 and painting him as the "aggressor."
Although Miami Beach Police Department officers responded to the complaint, they determined that there was insufficient probable cause to warrant an arrest for domestic violence. In response to the fresh charges, Lisa told Page Six that she had previously had to contact the police because of Lenny's actions. The same has been confirmed by a representative.
'There is a long history of me having to call the police because of Lenny’s behavior'
“As we will make clear in our response filing, there is a long history of me having to call the police because of Lenny’s behavior,” Lisa told the publication. The court papers were submitted by Lenny as part of an urgent plea for temporary full custody of their two children, Logan, seven, and Elle, three. Given Lisa's claimed "behavior," Lenny thinks the children should live with him with Lisa getting regular visits.
In spite of earlier claims that she is "bleeding" him dry financially, he says in the documents that he would live in their mansion and pay for the Bravolebrity to find housing elsewhere. Lenny thinks Lisa's behavior is related to his finding her supposed listening devices, despite his claim that he is "uncertain" of the "issues" that are affecting her.
She angrily refuted any accusations that she had installed such devices on his automobile, branding them as "mean and calculated." After 12 years of marriage, Lenny filed for divorce from Lisa in May 2022.
